Dr. Scherb and his team are amazing

Dan Rodemeyer of Hampton was at work when the unexpected happened. While on the loading dock, a 4,000 pound steel I-beam fell onto his foot. Dan said, “I was wearing steel toe boots, but the sheer weight of the steel beam crushed my foot and broke two of my toes. It was extremely painful to say the least.”

Dan initially went to the emergency room in Hampton. His foot had very severe soft tissue compression injuries, and there was an internal wound that was causing extreme swelling and pain. Although his big and second toe were broken, thankfully they were not compound fractures.

“After our visit to the ER, we were referred to orthopedic surgeon Dr. Michael Scherb at Mason City Clinic. He explained to my wife and me that my traumatic injury was going to be a long recovery period and that the most important part of the recovery was ensuring my wound would heal properly without any infection,” Dan said.

Dan’s wife Lu was at his side throughout the entire process. Lu said, “Everything was so well-explained to us about dealing with an open wound and broken toes. I wanted to be able to provide care for Dan at home, and Dr. Scherb kindly listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. He and the nurses were so compassionate. Everyone was interested in Dan’s physical and mental comfort.

After four months of recuperating Dan was able to return to work.

Dan explained, “Dr. Scherb and his team are amazing. He was always professional, and thorough with us, and had an excellent bedside manner. We got a rock star doctor.”
